    • Second Wave's options War Wariness will affect this value, causing it to be reduced each month until it reaches zero.
  • Country Funding, which is only given if the country has a satellite deployed over it. The values are fixed and listed below, unless Second Wave's option New Economy, which will randomize the values.
    • On Easy difficulty the values are increased by +50%.

Net Monthly Income

Finances 3 (EU2012).png

The total monthly income at the disposal of the Commander to purchase/build/hire is calculating by subtracting the Gross Income from the Expense. This value may be negative, on which case you'll receive a warning message.

Finances 4 (EU2012).png

It is possible to run a negative budget but if you ran out of available credits, your current account will be negative and you'll have to repay the value before you are able to purchase, build or hire. If end the month with a negative balance, it will reduce the grade received in the Monthly Report.
